Keeping things crafty, here’s something different. Italian designer, Giorgia Zanellato, wanted to confront the waste factor of leftover hair in Lausanne’s many hair salons. So, she devised a process to recycle the hair into hair accessories.
Entitled “Hairdressed,” the series is menagerie of hair combs and accessories
made from fallen follicles and resin.
Zanellato experimented with organic materials like wood and felt and used resin as a bonding agent. She pours the mix into molds and then laser cuts the hardened forms.
